Vermont has lowest rate of wireless-only households

first_imgOklahoma leads the nation in the percentage of households with cell phones only, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than a quarter of households (26.2 percent) in Oklahoma had only wireless and no landline phones in 2007. On the other end of the spectrum, only 5.1 percent of households in Vermont were wireless-only in 2007.The report from CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, “Wireless Substitution: State-level Estimates from the National Health Interview Survey, January-December 2007,” is the latest report on wireless substitution in the United States.”These findings are important to CDC because many of our largest surveys are done on calls to landline phone numbers. All of those adults with only cell phones are being missed in these surveys,” said Stephen J. Blumberg, health scientist with CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics and lead author of the study.In addition to Oklahoma, states with the highest percentage of wireless-only households are Utah (25.5 percent), Nebraska (23.2 percent), Arkansas (22.6 percent) and Idaho (22.1 percent). States with the lowest percentages, following Vermont, are Connecticut (5.6 percent), Delaware (5.7 percent), South Dakota (6.4 percent) and Rhode Island (7.9 percent).The report also shows the percentage of adults who use only wireless phones is also highest in Oklahoma (25.1 percent) and lowest in Delaware (4 percent). The District of Columbia also had a high percentage of adults who use cellphones only (25.4 percent).The percentage of wireless-only phone use among households and adults varies greatly within regions. For example, in the Midwest, the state that has the most wireless-only households, Nebraska (23.2 percent), borders the state with the least, South Dakota (6.4 percent).Results from previous CDC reports on wireless substitution show wireless-only phone use continues to grow on a national level. A recent report found that 17.5 percent of U.S. homes had only wireless telephones during the first half of 2008 — nearly 3 percentage points greater than the estimate for 2007 (14.7 percent). The percentage of adults using only wireless-only phones also grew from 13.6 percent in 2007 to 16.1 percent in the first half of 2008.The full report is available at http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhsr/nhsr014.htm(link is external).CONTACT: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Center forHealth Statistics Office of Communication, +1-301-458-4800/PRNewswire-USNewswire — March 11/SOURCE Centers for Disease Control and Preventionlast_img read more

Fenerbahce offer €12m to loan Leicester City striker Iheanacho

first_img A road of escape seems to have opened for the Super Eagles forward who has been struggling to make the first eleven of the English side. Aston Villa and  Celtic are said to be amongst those clubs that had registered an interest and now Fenerbahce have joined the race. Erol Bulut’s side, who underperformed this season with a seventh-place finish in the SuperLig, are on the brink of parting ways with popular forward Vedat Muriqi.

Read More European giants, Fenerbahce, are ready to launch a €12m rental bid for Nigeria and Leicester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho according to reports monitored from Turkey. The Nigerian international has been subject to talk that he will depart the King Power Stadium this summer with Brendan Rodgers said to have his eyes on Celtic forward Ousmane Edouard. And that has seen clubs from across the Premier League and continental Europe look to Iheanacho this summer. That departure will see them pocket €16m and a report by Fotospor claims that €12m of that will be offered to Leicester in the hope of securing two-year loan deal for Iheanacho. But there is a catch for the Foxes who will be asked to foot the bill for his wages throughout his time in Turkey, the report claims. The 23-year-old, who joined the club from Manchester City for a fee of £25m back in 2017, still has two years left on his current deal at the King Power Stadium meaning, if the deal comes to fruition, the remainder of his time as a Leicester City player will be spent in Istanbul. The departure of Iheanacho this summer will help the Foxes to raise funds to help attract a partner for golden boot winner Jamie Vardy next season. Rodgers has been heavily linked with a swoop for Celtic star Edouard but that could cost anywhere between £30m-£40m. read also:Leicester City aiming at £40m Celtic swoop for Nigeria star Iheanacho Iheanacho has scored nine Premier League goals for the Foxes in 71 outings but that stat does not paint the full picture with the youngster so frequently featuring as a substitute for Leicester.
